Ours was extra sweet, celebrating a child’s birthday today. I’ve known “C” since she was months old having known her family even longer, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing her at almost every stage. As a very young infant in RIE classes before she could roll over, an adventurous two year old challenging herself every step of the way, when she joined our school program, and now a four year old confident and as interested in learning new things just as she was, at each step of her development along the way.
Today was also Michealmas, our autumn day festival. It’s one of my favorites, reminding me of our connection to each other. Each of us, struggle with our own dragon (inside of us) to tame.
We had our play, with one child dressed as a dragon, another as a knight Michael, protector, and others, who were industrious farmers. Our story spoke about taming the beast, and I was reminded of the continued work it is for each one of us.

When I work with families and the art of developing discipline,
we start with self-discipline.
We can’t teach what we don’t know.
This month in our Optimistic Parenting classes,
we will be focusing on developing discipline.
Join our Facebook community and keep your eyes open for tips on discipline
through the lenses of Observation, Rhythm, Consistency, and Room for growth.
